Morning all. Garden here looking lovely and fresh after.. er.. precipitous rain, too, FG! Must admit, another term came to mind!
BL, soundsd like hard work in that heat! I'm amazed the weeds took off in such dry, hot weather. You must have very good soil.
DHC, enjoy your holiday. Hope the weather stays good - or perhaps you are going to sunnier climes.
Fidgetbones, how horrid! That's the very reason I don't watch nature programmes - there's always that element of cruelty and sadness. I know, I know, I'm a wimp.
TT, I'm with you in wishing the pop-up titles for the smilies would come back - I daren't use most of them.
Sold my lovely little Ka yesterday and we are now officially a one-car family. Spent the money instantly on a new bathroom, which cheered me up quite a bit. It took us so long to buy all the bits that the very knowledgeable lady serving me asked whether I was a secret shopper! The whole thing descended into farce because I had lost the previous list of what we wanted (one they gave me last time I went there and spent a whole hour choosing), their own list had disappeared from their computer, Mr GG followed us arouind objecting that I had got it wrong and anyway the tiles were not the same as the ones we had chosen and then claimed that he was going to send me down to Cardiff docks with my red handbag to earn the money to pay for it. Told him he could have a long wait for the money. By the time we left, the staff were giggling, OH was longing for a loo and I needed a cuppa. But the bathroom is sorted and they are going to store it all until the fitters come. Great service, actually.
Today, I'm going back to pay. Wonder if they'll all disappear to the loo when they see us coming.
